WGU is designed to complement and supplement state systems and bring innovative, flexible, and attainable educational opportunities to individuals who historically have not been well served by higher education.

By enabling students to master skills at their own pace, competency-based learning systems help to save both time and money. Learn more about CBE in this video.
